Top Ten Tuesday; Books Written Before I Was Born

It's Tuesday and time for a new Top Ten Tuesday post, courtesy of That Artsy Reader Girl. The theme of the week was books written before I was born.

Here's my picks.

The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

The Woman in Black by Susan Hill

Dracula by Bram Stoker

The Shining by Stephen King

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey

Animal Farm by George Orwell

Ariel by Sylvia Plath

The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman


  1. I reread The Hobbit via audiobook recently and loved it. Happy reading! :D My TTT

  2. The Woman in Black was such a good story.

    My post.

  3. "Haunting" is one of my favorite books even. Great list!

    1. Thank you. Haunting is a really good book, so I don't blame you.

  4. Animal Farm was a pretty interesting book! You should definitely read it! Great list!

    Here’s my TTT!

    1. I read it several years ago and I can't deny it was an interesting read.

  5. I love The Hobbit! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  6. I loved The Woman in Black movie, but I didn't realize until later that it was based on a book -- I do wish I'd read that first; I'm wondering if I'll be as satisfied by the spooky imagery in text alone. Not an unfounded fear, since I also loved the '99 adaptation of The Haunting of Hill House and was underwhelmed by the book when I read it afterward.
